Surveying the opinions of students enrolled in the undivided Informatics teacher training program on Computational Thinking at the Eszterházy Károly University

The idea of Computational Thinking (CT) functions as an umbrella term impacting the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) areas. The concept entails algorithmic thinking, problem solving, programming instruction, and the application of simulation games.

My three phase inquiry utilises a combined research paradigm facilitates research, development, and innovation.

In an earlier stage of my research I relied on a deductive approach to explore the representations of this concept in the international arena. I analysed the manifestations of Computational Thinking in the DigComp 2.1 framework system accepted by the European Union according to set criteria and investigated the capability of Computational Thinking to facilitate a methodological shift in the education profession by the application of modern digital solutions via the Complex Basic Program.

In the second and current stage of my research I turn to the combined paradigm method (Sántha, 2014) to perform an empirical examination focusing on Computational Thinking-related opinions of students enrolled in undivided Informatics teacher training programs at the Eszterházy Károly University. This attitude survey utilizes a self-developed questionnaire along with interviews.

The survey aims to obtain a comprehensive evaluation of prospective teachers’ views on the given theme. Based upon the respective results, in the next stage of my research I will introduce various tools and programs facilitating the development of algorithmic thinking.
